Dr. Brian Nguyen, a pediatrician Dignity Health Medical Foundation - Woodland and Davis, has several tips to help keep kids with allergies safe during Halloween.
First, if your child has a severe food allergy, talk to your pediatrician or allergist about trick-or-treating, and be aware of your child's limitations. This doesn't mean your child has to miss out on the fun, by any means! In fact, healthy parents are implementing a shift away from the importance of candy on Halloween. Remember to discuss with your children all the other reasons Halloween is fun (you get to dress up, play games, be with friends, etc.).
